    Remember the iconic scene of 2013’s Spring Breakers when James Franco’s character Alien, (possibly his most transformative role yet) stood on the beach and whispered  “Spring break, forever” as the warm Miami breeze went through his beaded cornrows? Whether those braids were real or fake we may never know, but there’s a bigger issue we’d like to address. Alien certainly was not on spring break, and sadly, neither are we. But hey, we get it, just because you aren’t on the warm sand beaches of Cancun doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you are, or at the very least drink like you are. Here are some Spring Break cocktails to drink when you aren’t on Spring Break but everyone else is.

    You know the whole, live every like it’s your last, mantra that is supposed to make you live in the moment and take chances? Well I think we can all agree that a couple of shots of tequila can make taking those chances a lot easier. Jose Cuervo thinks so too.

    Winter storm Stella knew what she was doing when she kept most of the east coast stuck in doors this week. You might have used the day to reorganize your closet (that Nickelback t-shirt from high school will never be “fashionably ironic”) or try that new crockpot recipe (aka dump any ingredient you have and let it simmer for 4 hours), but we used the time off to gear up for the weekend.

    Let’s Get Dairy Wasted

    Featured Story / March 14, 2017 / No Comments.

    Thanks to Melissa Tavss, founder and CEO of Tipsy Scoop, we can now eat, and drink, our feelings.

    According to Melissa, each flavor has a 5% alcohol volume, but still tastes like sweet, creamy ice cream. And this lady knows what she’s talking about. Her Italian ancestors brought ice cream to Scotland, and her great grandfather became President of the Ice Cream Alliance of Great Britain. Didn’t know that was a thing either, but it seems legit.
